Art Glass for Interior Design: fused glass cocktail table tops, cabinet inserts, dining coffer, wall sconces and wall light inserts

Rushmore, Nordlund 106 for Dave Fulton, designed by Ed Monk Jr.This project was for the interior of a yacht.  The client wanted a color palette that would bring the ocean inside.  To create the design, I used organic shapes that flow into and wrap around each other the way water currents might.

By combining areas of raked glass with areas of single hue glass, the movment is fluid without being overwehlming. The design for the dining coffer wraps around the eight panels beginning as it ends.  03.1 Salon 7 - Art Glass Cocktail Table (Detail)_2 The palette used for the art glass set the tone for the rest of the furnishings.

 

 

The design for the two cocktail tabletops as well as for the three cabinet inserts is oreinted on the diagonal.  This establishes a visual dynamic between the two table tops.  The addition of dichroic glass adds a bit of sparkle.  The tables can be lit with LED lights installed within the table base.

Wall sconces were added throughout the yacht.  Ribbons of color are paired with areas of white raked glass which adds subtle movment to the mostly white sconces.

Panels which echo the wall sconses were installed in the pilot house to add some ambient light.

This was an amazing project and I feel very honored to have been included.  The clients were very pleased with the results which was truly a team effort.  Working with the folks who constructed the interior of the yeacht, the interior designer and the company that put it all toghether was a tremendous learning experience which I treasure.
